HUSQVARNA, THE PIONEER IN ROBOTIC MOWING AND SMARTMOWING TECHNOLOGY HAS REVEALED THE AUTOMOWER® NERA – ITS FIRST AUTOMOWER® ROBOTIC MOWER THAT SUPPORTS BOUNDARY WIRE-FREE MOWING IN PRIVATE GARDENS.
Set to launch early next year, Automower® NERA supports the EPOS satellite navigation system and makes robotic lawn care even more effortless, as it lets the user create virtual cutting zones with the help of a mobile phone. This gives the user the flexibility of deciding where to cut, when and at what height. Offering an even smoother Automower® experience, the Automower® NERA range can handle more complex terrains and steep slopes, and steers away from unwanted objects on the lawn.
The Automower® NERA range comes in three models, all of which support boundary wire-free technology. Husqvarna Automower® 430X NERA and 450X NERA can cut lawns of up to 3200 square metres and 5000 square metres respectively, while Automower® 320 NERA is optimal for lawns up to 2200 square meters. Both mowers in the 400 series come equipped with the object avoidance feature, based on radar technology, that helps the mower detect and avoid common objects like toys and garden tools. This reduces the stress of always keeping the lawn tidy and reduces the number of unwanted stops. All models come with improved terrain handling, which reduces the wear and tear of the lawn and can also be washed easily with a hose.
More than 25 years ago, Husqvarna launched the world’s first robotic mower and changed the lawn mowing category forever. With NERA, a new chapter of lawn mowing is about to begin for homeowners, where physical boundary wires can be replaced by Husqvarna´s satellite navigation system, EPOS. Husqvarna EPOS is a well-proven technology, as it was launched for the professional segment two years ago. Husqvarna Automower® NERA can operate with a precision of 2-3 cm and take on rough terrain and slopes with up to 50% inclination. For the NERA range to operate without physical boundary wires, an EPOS plug-in kit will be required, which will be sold as a separate accessory.
“We are thrilled to launch the boundary wire-free solution for private garden owners, as we know that many people have been waiting for this ever since we first introduced that technology in the professional market. NERA really represents the next generation of smart lawn care, with less effort and more precise mowing,” says Ryan Patterson, Residential Segment Manager at Husqvarna UK.
Husqvarna Automower® NERA will be available to customers from early 2023.
